While the receivers didn’t break off the big plays against Cleveland, they did make enough plays to get the win on Sunday. Jeremy Kerley was once again solid in the slot hauling in four catches for a team high 39 yards.
After a great first two weeks, Jermaine Kearse’s production has dropped because of the extra attention that defense have been paying to arguably the Jets best weapon at wideout. Still, Kearse was able to find the end zone once again and tied Kerley with four receptions while adding 38 yards of his own. However, Kearse did have a fumble but it luckily wasn’t recovered by the Browns.
The biggest disappointment was Robby Anderson who had made a big play in each of the last two games but was held to just 16 yards on two catches.
This unit needs to be able to make the big plays for the offense and against New England’s weak secondary will need to step up against the Patriots.
